Why Box needs you?

At Box, we are seeking a talented Full Stack Engineer to join our team and play a pivotal role in the maintenance and development of Box Notes, our collaborative note-taking and real-time editing tool. As a Full Stack Engineer, your expertise will be essential in driving the success of Box Notes and ensuring it continues to meet the evolving needs of our users. You’ll be involved in initiatives aimed at transforming our codebase and the overall app and you’ll be successful thanks to what you bring. Versatile Technical Skills: Your proficiency in both frontend technologies such as React, pure JavaScript, and TypeScript, as well as backend technologies like Node.JS, will enable you to navigate the entire technology stack with ease. Legacy Code Transformation: We need your ability to re-think, re-architecture, and refactor the legacy components of our codebase, ensuring that Box Notes remains efficient, scalable, and adaptable. Collaborative Mindset: Your strong teamwork and leadership qualities will enable you to collaborate effectively with fellow architects and your team, fostering discussions and proposing innovative solutions to technical challenges. Quality-Driven Approach: We value your commitment to maintaining high-quality standards while managing efficient development timelines, ensuring that our users get the best possible experience.

What you’ll do:

  • Lead large-scale projects to completion, from requirements gathering to deployment, while fostering Box culture and representing Box Poland internally and externally.
  • Collaborate with the team to assess, align, and plan the re-architecture of any components in Note that do not meet Box's overall engineering standards. Ensure that the re-architecture enables safe, efficient, and maintainable development of high-quality features, in order to improve user and developer experience.
  • Manage and maintain substantial portions of legacy code on both the frontend and backend.
  • Take part in daily stand-ups, sprint review/retrospectives, planning sessions, team meetings, and one-on-one meetings with the manager.
  • Participate in production on-call rotation with your team members

Who you are:

  • You have 2+ years of professional software development experience
  • You have experience with Typescript, Javascript and React
  • You have Experience with Node.js. Ideally you’ve also worked with Java.
  • You have experience working with legacy codebases and tightly-coupled systems (we’re now in the process of decoupling/refactoring it) —in fact, you thrive on the excitement and extra challenges they bring to the table!
  • Ever worked with Docker, Jenkins or handled pipeline work? That's some cool bonus points right there!
  • You speak English like a boss, so no language barriers when we brainstorm together!
  • You're on a mission to solve problems, regardless of the technology involved. Many of the challenges we encounter demand a "software engineer" mindset, transcending the typical frontend/backend developer approach.
  • Team player? Oh yeah! You love collaborating and being a part of the A-team for epic projects
